Marsha Cottrell’s drawings, 2011-2012, iron oxide on mulberry paper
Brooklyn-based artist Marsha Cottrell creates deft, intricate drawings of stellar landscapes, imaginary worlds floating light years away. ”The first landscape images in art I connected with as a young person were da Vinci’s “deluge” drawings,” she told Review Interview. “I was attracted to the idea that they were not representations of actual places, but eternal/internal landscapes that might be found anywhere at any moment in time. Their energy, architecture, and intricacy—but not rigidity—always appealed to me. They seemed to present an open platform with which to interact, and I’ve always aspired for my own work operate in a similar way.” Click to look through the stars, and then be sure to head over to Cottrell’s website to check out more of her work.

i wonder what marketing for penile cancer would look like?
“I LOVE PENIS”
“SAVE THE PENISES”
and if women wore some of their shirts or bracelets, they would be seen as whores or sluts or asking for it, maybe even resulting in rape, but when men wear “save the boobies” or “save second base” shirts, they are applauded for caring about a human being by yet again sexualizing a serious illness.
HOW UNSETTLING IS THAT
